Morningthorpe – temporary closure of recycling centre while essential maintenance work is carried out

 

Morningthorpe recycling centre near Long Stratton will need to close for eight weeks from 13 June for essential maintenance work to improve the drainage and carry out substantial repairs to the hardstanding.

The work will allow the site to continue to operate safely and meet environmental regulations.

Unfortunately there is not a way of keeping the recycling centre open while the work is carried out so the recycling centre will be closed from Tuesday 13 June and is set to reopen on Saturday 5 August 2017.

The nearest alternative recycling centres which are open seven days a week are:

  • Ketteringham (near Hethersett), Station Lane, NR9 3AZ
  • Mile Cross (Norwich), Swanton Road, NR2 4LH

    Other nearby sites that are open Fridays to Mondays only are:

  • Bergh Apton – Wellbeck Road, NR15 1AU
  • Wymondham – Strayground Lane, NR18 9NA

All of the alternative recycling centres are between 10 to 11 miles from Morningthorpe Recycling Centre.

The work which will cost £90,000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors.

The County Council thanks people for their patience while these essential works are carried out.
